UK not yet convinced to re-introduce post study work visa

Recently, Y-Axis had posted an article on how politicians in Scotland want the re-introduction of the post study work visa scheme . The scheme was taken off the shelves in the year 2012, which has resulted in brain drain in Universities and shortage of skilled workers who have studies in the British region. Now news coming out of the UK says that James Brokenshire, UK’s Immigration Minister, has refused to commit to allowing the region of Scotland to develop its own post study work visa scheme to make it easier for overseas students from non-EU countries to stay and work in the country.

Minister Brokenshire’s position conflicts with proof heard at the Scottish Parliament some time ago, when it was asserted a 2012 regulation to reject a programmed 24 month post graduation work visa for overseas student immigrants implied that education institutions were attempting to compete with different countries and the nation was enduring a ‘brain drain’ of skilled workers. There is a developing debate for Scotland to be permitted to acquire its own particular visa option which supports colleges, schools, universities, UK’s economy and the wider society.

In opposition to the Scottish Parliament’s advisory group, there is a agreement that the rejected post-study work visa was misused and undermined by many foreign immigrants. At present, foreign students face being kicked out of the nation on the off chance that they don’t secure graduate level occupation paying salaries UK£ 20,800 inside of four months of graduating, a circumstance that contends to put overseas immigrants off applying to UK universities.

In contradicting voice, numerous organizations and college heads have said there was a developing accord from schools and UK colleges that the present plans on offer were negative essentially to UK since results demonstrate a cerebrum channel impact is now affecting contrarily on the UK as a study destination and organizations are being denied of a world-class pool of ability, prepared and created in Scotland.
